WATSON 349

 

Description:
Oblong white pill indexed with “WATSON 349” on one side, and scored on the other.

Drug Class: Narcotic Analgesic Combinations

Active Ingredients: Acetaminophen / Hydrocodone bitartrate

Strength: 500mg / 5mg

Manufacturer: Watson Laboratories, Inc.

Overview:

Acetaminophen/hydrocodone is a combination of two different pain-relief medicines with two different mechanisms of action.  Hydrocodone works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain. It belongs to a group of medicines called narcotic analgesics (pain medicine) and helps to relieve pain, and stops or prevents cough. Acetaminophen on the other hand is a mild pain reliever and fever reducer at the same time. Due to their different mechanisms of action, Watson 349 is a more potent painkiller than either of the two drugs present in a single pill.

Uses:

 This pill is an effective drug combination that relieves moderate-to-moderately severe pain provided the patient doesn’t overdose. Some of the conditions which it may be useful are:

  • Osteoarthritis of back, knee joints, shoulder joints, wrist joint, ankle joints and other joints
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Joint pains in systemic lupus arthritis, sacro-iliitis and other musculoskeletal disorders
  • Acute back pain/ chronic back pain and neuropathic pains
  • It can also be useful in cancer palliative therapy to control pains of malignancies or cancer.

This medication is best taken at the first sign of pain. If you wait for the pain to worsen, the medication may not work very well.

Dosage:

This drug is available in oral tablet and oral liquid form. It is also available in generic cost-saving versions.

This medicine should be taken exactly as prescribed and only by the person to whom it was prescribed for. Dosage depends on the current medical condition, severity of illness, weight (children), and response to treatment.

Tablet form of this medicine may be taken with or without food. If the patient feels nauseated or vomiting, this medicine can be taken with meals. Liquid form of this medicine should be measured properly not by a regular table spoon but with a calibrated measuring spoon, syringe or cup provided by your health professional.

Missed Dose

Two doses should not be taken at the same time. Take the missed dose as soon as you remember and skip the schedule if it is almost time for the next dose.
